Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma, commonly called a PRP facial, is a type of natural skin rejuvenation treatment for improved skin tone, texture, and overall health. This innovative injectable treatment stimulates your body’s natural healing response and triggers natural collagen and elastin production. In addition to being an excellent treatment for a number of health conditions, PRP injections also create effective anti-ageing and skin boosting results.

By stimulating the healing systems in your skin, this quality treatment can be a great solution to sun damage, uneven tone, lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture, as well as many other common issues. The treatment can also increase hair growth when injected beneath the scalp follicles. Speak to Dr Shauna Watts to discuss your treatment plan and achieve a radiant, youthful glow.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP injections work by making use of the powerful, natural platelets in your blood. The process uses a blood sample that has been processed to increase the platelet concentration. When injected into the skin, this platelet rich plasma stimulates new cell growth and promotes healing, resulting in improved skin tone and texture.

PRP facial treatments are a multi-step process. They involve taking a sample of your own blood and spinning it in a centrifuge until the growth factor-rich platelets have separated into a golden plasma. This can then be injected into your skin to cause increased collagen production and make your skin more elastic, thicker and younger looking.

PRP Benefits

PRP injections are a great treatment to encourage skin rejuvenation and glow. It can also be used for acne scarring, solar damage, pigmentation, general skin scarring, stretch marks and other skin blemishes. It can be done on any part of the body including the face, neck, upper chest, hands and other areas. Enjoy natural results with this fast, effective treatment.

Dr Watts will speak with you about your skin needs and goals, tailoring the procedure to your own skin condition. PRP facial treatments can:

  • Stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
  • Reduce acne scarring
  • Plump and tighten sagging skin
  • Smooth skin tone issues and pigmentation
  • Improve overall skin health and vibrancy

PRP injections can also encourage the growth of healthy, voluminous hair. Speak to Dr Watts at your consultation in order to find out what you can achieve with PRP facial treatments.

The Procedure

The procedure will be based on your specific needs and skin condition. It is a three-step process that involves taking a blood sample, processing the sample to increase the platelet concentration, then injecting the processed plasma into the patient’s chosen treatment area. During your PRP facial treatment, you can expect the following:

  1. Dr Watts will take a sample of blood from your own body, usually from the arm.
  2. This blood sample (plasma) is then processed through a centrifuge to separate the components and increase the concentration of platelets.
  3. Lastly, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into your treatment area (often the face, neck, or hands).

The PRP treatment softens, smooths, and tightens the skin, reducing skin damage and providing natural, visible results. Treatment sessions for PRP injections generally take between 30 to 45 minutes.

PRP Facial Results and Recovery

PRP injections are a minimally-invasive treatment, and patients should be able to return to work and other activities straight away. However, you should refrain from exercising for 24 hours and follow any other aftercare instructions given by Dr Watts. These may include:

  • Avoid smoking and alcohol
  • Stay hydrated
  • Avoid touching or rubbing your treated area
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure

Using plasma from your own body helps to reduce risks, since it is not a foreign substance and therefore your body is able to process it optimally. The platelets release growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration and the production of new collagen fibres. This helps turn back the clock and repair years of skin damage, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. PRP injections begin to take effect straight away, with a continued improvement in the days and weeks afterwards.
